Saxony Village Center

Acting as lead development advisor, LiveWorkLearnPlay led the masterplanning process and formulated a comprehensive plan, development program and strategies to create a waterfront Village Center in Saxony.


Saxony is a 750-acre mixed-use development located in Hamilton County, the fastest growing county in Indiana. Located 20 miles northeast of Indianapolis off I-69, the site straddles the municipalities of the Town of Fishers and the City of Noblesville. To the south of I-69, LiveWorkLearnPlay has outlined a strong vision for a mixed-use Village Center to the south of I-69 that will be the heart of Saxony development and the region.


In June 2009, Republic Development recruited LiveWorkLearnPlay to lead the envisioning, masterplanning, and business plan development for Republic’s mixed-use community. Through on-going financial analysis, LiveWorkLearnPlay provided the rationale for the planning objectives and for specific development decisions. As lead development consultant, LiveWorkLearnPlay led the master-planning process by managing planners, engineers, landscape architects, marketing experts and supported the approvals process to ensure that the plan continued to respond to key development objectives and market demand.
